Born for this (Bawn Fi Dis)
A glimpse into your pile of nothingness, at how futile your life has been
You’re going to take nothing when you go out of here, cause you brought nothing in
You’re a loser there I said it, you’re just trying to save your very skin
But until you lose what’s to be lost, you are never ever going to win.
You are trying and trying so very hard, wanting so much to succeed
Just so that you may consume it all, in all of your envy and in your greed.
But you’re a loser I know it, despite the social stair you be climbing
Until you lose what’s to be lost, you’re never going to win
You’ve kicked the doors wide open and then,
steamroll over haters same as loving friend
Yet in all of this you can’t venture beyond
That someone who’s standing right there you see,
is that someone else who’s holding the key
He’s there to remind you if you’ll but listen to him
You’re a loser mister man, and there’s a reason why you can’t get in,
Until you lose what’s to be lost, you’re never going win
You spread your feathers like a blooming peacock,
and boast of all the fine blings you’ve got
But what good is all of that to you I wonder,
when you are lying stretched out six feet under
Before that day finally breaks, it may do you good if notice you take,
that you are a loser my friend, born to lose in order to win
except for losing your load of sin, you’re never ever going to win
